I can't tell if you are joking or not lol but neither are in the tournament.
I saw the hosts don't get automatic bids...at the moment.
Collusion with the Russians it is then...
since the US isnt in it, I want complete carnage with the top sides.
speaking of soccer, I watched 89 the other day on Netflix. definitely a good watch.
So... who does everyone have moving onto the Round of 16?
The locations in Brazil were pretty far apart. Not as far as what 2026 would be, but pretty sure there was some good distance brtween
Holy ****ing ****, someone tell me I didn't just hear that Lalas was nominated for an Emmy. For ****ing what? What the **** has happened since I was gone? Holy Lord Baby Jesus.
Someone please kill me. This is straight Pierre 2.0 Ear Poison.
US, I don’t see you? Did the ol’ “playing bad players over good players” strategy not workout?
Can’t wait to see 40 year old Dempsey/Bradley/Altidore on the 2020 qualifying roster
I loved when he roasted the **** out of USA Soccer, Pierre wouldn’t have the balls for that.
Nah it was the "We're too good to play on this flooded pitch" strategy that did them in.
Also, come on Russia. Took them -1 because i'm a degenerate and I won a **** ton betting on every game last World Cup.
I wish you lots of luck, but they have an absolute sieve between the posts, so no lead will be safe until the final whistle blows.
Gazinsky scores for Mother Russia!
Portugal/Spain tomorrow should be interesting.
Still can't believe Team USA missed this party by losing
to Trinidad & Tobago.
I'm not going to say I don't need luck but after last go around where I threw darts at every single game. I'm happy with whatever, haha.
The Russian factor has really dampened my enthusiasm for this WC.
There's number two. Now the match can end.
This gif could get some use around here.
Hey guys, any idea if bars in center city will be open for the Uruguay/Egypt game at 8am tomorrow?
Putin debating with the Saudi (sheikh?) was pretty hilarious.
Damn this game, I bet a 1:1 tie in our pool at work.
Easiest game of the tourney to guess.
I am very, very down on this Russian squad, but I see I underestimated them big time in this game. It was between 2:1 RUS and 1:1 for me but this caught me surprised
More so Putin and Co. weren't going to allow a loss to open the tourney against a Saudi Arabia side.
They could lose the rest of their matches now though.
I was wondering about that, too.
The last (and only) time there were multiple host countries (Japan and South Korea in 2002) both teams got an automatic berth.
From an article on the MLS website, it sounds like this hasn't been ironed-out yet.
How 2026 World Cup host cities will be picked
It’s not yet clear whether the US, Canada and Mexico will all automatically qualify for the 2026 World Cup or if they’ll have to compete with other Concacaf countries for a spot. Host nations have always been granted automatic berths into the tournament, including in the lone previous World Cup that was co-hosted by multiple countries (2002; Japan and South Korea).
Some confusion arose on Wednesday when FIFA president Gianni Infantino told reporters that it would be up to Concacaf to decide if the US, Canada and Mexico receive auto-bids to the World Cup. Cordeiro [U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro] contradicted Infantino’s statement on the conference call, saying that the decision will be made by FIFA.
FIFA determines how many spots in each World Cup are given to each confederation. It’s then down to each individual confederation to determine its own qualifying competition for its allocation of World Cup berths. Those decisions, along with the question of automatic qualification for the co-hosts, will presumably be made at a future FIFA congress.
The US failed to qualify for this summer’s World Cup, missing the tournament for the first time since 1986. Mexico last missed the tournament in 1990, while Canada hasn’t qualified for the World Cup since making their lone appearance in 1986.
“The issue about who will get automatic bids to the ‘26 World Cup, if that’s the question, that is not Concacaf’s decision that’s FIFA’s decision and that will be made in the passage of time,” Cordeiro said.
Only place I would guess is Fado at 15th and Locust but I don't think they'll be open for the 8AM games but could be wrong. I'd check with them.
